Keeps going, and going… just slowly.

Perfect activities for a low-energy day: puttering around in the morning, a brief nap, then south the be accosted by Jenn’s dogs for a while. Sushi dinner with G and Jenn. Now hanging out with Jenn and watching some TV and geeking before it’s time for bed. Good day.

Today must be Thursday.

I just got mail from a software vendor. This is not, in and of itself, all that unusual. However, what is kind of strange is that it was actually an email message directly to me, as opposed to an advertisement or announcement of some sort. Further, it was sent to an email address associated with a job that I haven’t had in nearly 9 years. To round out the weirdness factor, it was asking about a piece of software that I’d purchased for the team I was with 11 years ago, asking if we had any plans to upgrade to Windows 7.

If that’s a lead worth following-up on in your sales world, I’m sorry, man. I’ve forwarded your message on to the best person I could think of to handle it. Best of luck to you.

SSMS™ #3: Part D Complete

Whoo! As predicted, the fourth installment of the SSMS™ showed up on Tuesday. You may recall that I have started three different iterations of this shawl, and have discarded one, because the yarn and I were not getting along with one another. So, the black and white Kauni is SSMS™ #2, and the new blue / purple Blue Heron is SSMS™ #3.

When the fourth installment of the pattern showed up, I was working on #3, so I kept working on through. The photo below represents a couple of pattern repeats of the work in progress. It’s coming along nicely, I think.

SSMS #3: 2012.07.12: Part D Complete

As for SSMS #2, I’ve alluded to the fact that I’d made some mistakes and corrected them. I was, however, only half right. I did, in fact, make mistakes. I did not correct them. So, last night I completely ripped it out and started over. I’m about 90% of the way through Part B right now, and should be fully caught up long before the next (and final) installment of the pattern shows up.

(I do actually do things other than knit, I swear. However, my pain levels have been pretty high, and my energy levels pretty low. This makes doing much of anything else difficult, so there’s been a bit more knitting than usual going on.)
